Everything has grandeur, Jer's songs so drawn out and careful, esp, of course, that opening Sugaree.
Playin' suffices your jam appetite, but this is really about the whole being greater, etc. It's a big, beautiful, inspired masterpiece of music way up in Alaska. Certainly worth a listen in this format, my go-to source.
Subject: Just beautiful
Hands down this is my favorite Sugaree. It is beautiful, mildly raunchy and you get so many solos.
Great thanks to whoever put this matrix together. I am so thankful for the opportunity to hear the flavor of the venue and get the clarity of the sbd.
I think this is a show where the band is playing tight and the value of Brent on the keyboards in particular is so energizing and beautiful and raunchy as well as his back up vocals. See Samson and Delilah for what Brent brings. I may also be partial to Dead Set which was also the only live recording that feels matrixy and edited to make the band seem even tighter than they ever really were while keeping the energy and beauty of their soloing. I always love hearing Big Railroad Blues and I think Supplication is always a joy to hear when its played well. I look forward to spending more time with the Terrapin and "take the test". Plus, Brokedown Palace is really one of the best encores if you like ending on a more thoughtful or emotional note. Brokedown is such a beautiful heartbreak.
If anyone knows of Sugarees they like more I would love to hear what they have to say but like so many things it may come down to personal preference versus any deadheads coming to any kind of consensus.
Subject: great show in the frozen tundra
sugar mag-close to perfect; sunshine daydream
sugaree-2nd solo-one of the best ever
list goes on and on
Everyone is right about the show's solstice energy but I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Stella Blue — but then again, it's a personal favorite. Honestly, Jer's muse rides him all the way... so melodic. Coltrane and Miles Davis have nothing on this man. It's performance art at it's best. We are so lucky.

Too much AUD at times but an interesting mix and lots to like here.

The first set begins with some spacey sounds on stage. 15 more second of tape would have revealed Brent making some trippy synth effects into the Sugaree. Someone, maybe Bob, is out of tune, or is it the pitch of the various sources? Either I got used to it, or else it gets corrected pretty quick
Jerry plays this show with precision and depth. Once again, ripping Samson! Can't wait to hear the rest.
Subject: An historical correction aimed at Gus_Manheim
FYI,Alaska was not the 50th state inducted into these United States of America, rather it was Hawaii.
Some historical facts you may, or may not, wish to consider:
Alaska State #49 Admitted to the union on Jan. 3, 1959.
Hawaii State #50 Admitted to the union on Aug. 21, 1959.
Just setting the record straight. Awesome show.
Love the matrix technology...

If anyone knows how to fix the problem with the archive player please do so! (as of 10/20/10 it does not continue track-to-track)
Subject: Where are the download files
Why does the little player above only allow playing one song at a time? The combination of the two makes listening to this concert a bit limited
I really like the 60/40 sbd/aud blend. I don't necessarily care about hearing people screaming but the ambiance of the room is really important to a live sound.
Subject: broke down
The loser is also a real treat, despite that song being somewhat spoiled for me forever by 03-24-90... impossible to live up to that standard.
Lazy lightning and Samson are both on point, but to me the highlight of the second set is the TERRAPIN! exquisite.
and for some reason, brent seems to really shine here. I never really notice or appreciate the keys as much as I should (my ears tend to want to follow Phil and Jerry more often than not), but many times during this show I found myself being captivated by Brent.
this one ranks as one of my favorite shows on the archive, but i've only been listening to these shows for a year or so (i'm a new generation deadhead) so take that compliment with a grain of salt.
Probably the main reason why I'm currently infatuated with this show has to do with the quality of the matrix... GREAT JOB GUYS!! These matrices always transcend me to another space in time! keep em coming, it's the closest thing us young folk are ever going to get to actually seeing the boys in concert.
Subject: Such trippy space
Subject: An Awesome Show
I am trying to find fault with this show and I just can't, from the setlist to the performance it gets 5 stars. Why don't they put this out as the next vault show? Instead they put out the July, 7,89 Philly show that I actually listened to twice (had to give it a 2nd chance) and then I put it on the shelf in my collection forever. That release is the first that I didn't load to my i-tunes.
This Alaska show isn't just the best of the run or one of the bext of 1980, IMHO it is one of the best I have heard all time and I'm not big on passing out praise like that.
The recording is also great.
Subject: fun trip
Subject: people still talk about this show in alaska
Subject: GREAT STUFF!
The Matrix is well-done, to say the least. I have not heard the pure board, but i'd imagine this being a rare occasion (Alaska Dead Run?!) that the crowd energy is a worthy inclusion. Usually i like the crispness of the pure SBD, but this matrix has all the proper audience noise, and it never annoys.
Stellar Terrapin>Playin'. Jerry's vocals on Terrapin are sublimely perfect. It almost sounds studio nice. Very tender rendition with a nice instrumental follow through. Playin' jam is intense and gets spacey towards the end with over 10 minutes of post-lyrics jamming. Good stuff! I had heard the night before, but i have to agree this one is the topper of the two Alaska shows i have heard. DLing night 1 right now.... Thanks!!
Subject: Killer Sound!
The show is amazing too. I think this is the best of the run. Get this now!
